Viewing emeralds as gem dealers do.
1- We have been asked

never display its full potential look. The picture shows the right technique to view an
emerald, and see the closest, natural appearance once the stone

Just hold it in between your finger as shown. Having an
incandescent light source on in the room,
will help also to see the
exact color and
brilliance in indoor environment.
Colombian emeralds will flourish when set in high karat yellow gold (in
Colombia, good goldsmiths will refuse to set any emerald in white
gold!). They will just beautify their appearance
tenfold. No other colored stone will flourish so much, when set in a
yellow gold setting like an emerald does.

DO NOT USE ANY ULTRASONIC CLEANER OR STEAMER when
you set or clean your emerald.
Ask the jeweler that will set your emerald,
not to use the buffing wheel to polish the ring
or pendant, once the stone is set.
The setting should be high polish before setting the emerald. Once
the stone is set, the jeweler should just polish the prongs or bezel
with the hand piece, without going over the stone in any way.
Avoid rapid temperature
changes and high heat
Emerald is a hard gem, which is however brittle. Make sure to remove
your emerald ring before any heavy activities such as washing dishes
by hand, or working with tools. A hard knock can break your emerald.
2- Clean your emerald periodically (when it is less lively
and sparkling) with
cold water and a mild soap.
Perform this operation with the help of a soft toothbrush. Clean it well, rinse
it and dry it.
